2001 Dutch Object Guard Championships

Posted: 01-02-2008 • Length: 1 Hour, 19 Minutes, 29 Seconds
Categories: Working/Sport Dog Training
The most difficult bite work exercise to train in all biting dog sports is the object guard. This is the only exercise in bite work where the dog has to work completely independently of the handler. The dog needs to make a decision on when to bite and when to release the bite without any influence of the handler. This Object Guard Championship was filmed by Ed Frawley in 2001 at the KNPV championships in Denn Bosh, Holland. The Object Guard Competition does not take place every year at the KNPV Championships,we were just lucky enough to have been there on the year it was held.

This is the first time that I traveled to Holland and filmed the Object Guard Championships. This year the competition took place on the same weekend as the PH 1 and PH 2 championships.

The KNPV has 4 competitions: PH 1, PH 2, the Object Guard and a tracking test (Sperhund). Dogs that compete in the Object Guard all have PH1 titles before they attempt to qualify for this event. This year saw the first time in the history of the KNPV that one dog qualified for both the PH1 Championship and the Object Guard Championship.

If you are a fan of the Dutch Malinois, or if you have dogs in your kennel that have object guard dogs in their pedigrees, you should buy this video.

The image quality of this streaming video is nowhere near the quality it was when it was originally filmed. It is also nowhere near the quality of our current Leerburg training DVDs.

Many of the older dog shows and competitions were not encoded into a computer format until the video tapes were 20 to 25 years old. Over the years, the image quality of video tape deteriorates. These older dog shows are being offered for their historical significance. That's why we are streaming videos for its current price which originally sold for up to $100.00.

These videos are no longer offered on DVDs.
